“Groove Baby, Groove…A Story of Melodic Triumph…!” – Strong and his dynamic ensemble demonstrate the fundamental components at work when a band protects the melody of a song with groove. This highly interactive performance provides an in depth look at what makes a group of musicians sound like one voice, able to bend and shape the sound of music through subtle spontaneity. Along with fine tuning their understanding of musical interplay, audiences will gain a new level of expertise on how music is constructed around the development of beautiful melodies and tenacious grooves!
